Mccartney Given Royal Backing
Sir Paul McCartney has been given the royal seal of approval - with a dedication from Queen Elizabeth II's official composer.
The Beatles legend has received a prestigious nod from Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, who holds the post of Master of the Queen's Music in the U.K.
Davies is responsible for writing music to commemorate important state events.
And he has shown his respect for MCCartney - by dedicating his latest piece, Liber Pulsationis Fabulatoris, in recognition of the rocker's contribution to music.
The 20-minute choral work will be performed at Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral next month (Dec08).
He says, "Paul is as great as Schubert and still has not received the full recognition that his talent deserves. This country has produced one of the greatest musical talents ever and we should appreciate and celebrate that loudly."
